Awards and Service Ribbons
Award Name Date/Assignment Citation
Awards General Neelix 2011.jpg
Neelix Award 239506.25
USS Gorkon
For extra, out-of-character simming devotion. This includes, but isn't limited to, helping fellow officers who are in need of simming aid, visibility on the forums, OOC list presence, upkeep of wiki pages, etc.
Awards General ScottyCross 2011.jpg
Scotty Cross 239506.25
USS Gorkon
Given to an officer who shows extreme creativity while solving a plot dilemma or in-character plot twist.
Awards General SheathedSword 2011.jpg
Sheathed Sword 236506.25
USS Gorkon
Presented to those to decide to inflict mental and/or physical trauma on their character, and then dive into the resulting emotions and choices in a realistic manner. The name comes from a line in a Robert Jordan book where a warrior must be prepared to 'sheath the sword' in his own body, i.e. take a grievous wound to achieve one's goal (in this case, more realistic simming) as opposed to an actual goal of the character.

Phoenix Award 239607.01
USS Gorkon
Named for the vessel that legendary engineer Zefram Cochrane piloted during his historic first warp flight, this award goes to those Engineering officers who continue this tradition of excellence in the field of engineering. By performing their tasks with enthusiasm, imagination and diligence, by managing to make their equipment perform above and beyond its rated capacities, the officers meriting this award further the mission of their ship by their superior know-how. In short, miracle workers.

  • Starfleet Academy Graduate Ribbon, 239304.10
Starfleet Academy: Awarded to those who have graduated from Starfleet Academy.
  • Orion Syndicate Service Medal, 239310.12, 239504.01 (2nd Citation), 239607.25 (3rd Citation)
239310.12: Reynolds: In recognition that the Orion Syndicate is once again a serious and credible threat to the safety and security of Federation citizens, Starfleet has authorised the creation of new service ribbons to honour those who combat their criminal activities. ::She paused.:: The Gorkon crew is thereby awarded the War of Shadows Ribbon, and the Orion Syndicate Ribbon.
239504.01: Reynolds: I do have some service ribbons to award. First, due to the presence of the Syndicate aboard the station, everyone on the away teams is awarded the Orion Syndicate Service Medal. It's unfortunate that we keep running into them, but you all did yourselves proud.
239607.25: Reynolds: I hope you'll forgive me for presenting this one out in the crowds; there's a few too many of us to all get up on stage. As many of you are all too painfully aware, after years in the shadows, the Orion Syndicate has once again risen to be one of the most prominent threats against the safety and security of the Federation and its citizens. And so myself, Lieutenant Commanders Marshall, Sevo and Nkai; Lieutenants Adea, Stoyer, MacFarlane and L'rann; Lieutenants Junior Grade Neathler, Smith, Xerix, Fortune, Sevo, Marshall and Sienelis; Ensigns Cayne, Tereen, Namura, Keretene and Namura, Petty Officer First Class Johns and Crewman First Class Roshier Jackson are all awarded the Orion Syndicate Service Medal for our contributions to the ongoing efforts to combat them.
  • War of Shadows Ribbon, 239310.12
239310.12: Reynolds: In recognition that the Orion Syndicate is once again a serious and credible threat to the safety and security of Federation citizens, Starfleet has authorised the creation of new service ribbons to honour those who combat their criminal activities. ::She paused.:: The Gorkon crew is thereby awarded the War of Shadows Ribbon, and the Orion Syndicate Ribbon.
  • Captain's Commendation, 239409.10, 239604.27 (2nd Citation)
239409.10: Reynolds: The bomb itself was not a solo device, but had a partner that had not been detonated. The risk to life was extreme, and it was through the actions of two officers that the bomb was safely defused with no additional injuries. Lieutenant Commander Alerta Millis and Ensign Tasha MacFarlane displayed incredible grace under pressure, performing their duties in an exemplary fashion. For this reason, I am proud to award them the Captain's Commendation.
239604.27: Reynolds: I'm sure that you all remember hearing the warnings of a warp core breach early in the accident. It was thanks to the actions of Lieutenant Commander Vondaryan, Lieutenant MacFarlane and Lieutenants Neathler and Smith that event was avoided, and so I'm pleased to recognise their skills and teamwork with a Captain's Commendation.
  • Explorer’s Ribbon, 239409.10, 239412.14 (2nd Citation), 239604.27 (3rd Citation)
239409.10: Reynolds: Our mission to Leutra IV was one of science and investigation, but I cannot imagine that any of us could have anticipated the wonder and secrets that the planet held below its surface. For bringing these mysteries to light for further investigation, and for ensuring a peaceful first encounter with the sentient inhabitants of the planet, Starfleet awards the Explorer's Ribbon and the First Contact ribbon to the whole crew of the USS Gorkon.
239412.14:Reynolds: I'm going to keep this short, and a little informal. We had a hell of a time in the Roman Expanse, but I did come out of it reminded how fortunate I am to work with such remarkable people; clever, brave and dedicated. Starfleet's way of thanking people for going above and beyond is in the form of service ribbons, so I have a few to award tonight. ::She paused to gather her thoughts, recalling list of ribbons she had to award.:: First of all, we made some incredible discoveries during our time inside the Expanse. We met two new species, and brought information back from the heart of the nebula that I'm sure scientists will be pouring over for years. So I'm pleased to announce that everyone will be receiving the Explorer's Ribbon.
239604.27:Reynolds: While it caused considerable strife, the nebula was nonetheless a remarkable discovery, and one that scientists will be researching for a long time to come. Starfleet would like to recognise our findings with the Explorer's Ribbon, to all crew who were present.
  • First Contact Ribbon, 239409.10
239409.10: Reynolds: Our mission to Leutra IV was one of science and investigation, but I cannot imagine that any of us could have anticipated the wonder and secrets that the planet held below its surface. For bringing these mysteries to light for further investigation, and for ensuring a peaceful first encounter with the sentient inhabitants of the planet, Starfleet awards the Explorer's Ribbon and the First Contact ribbon to the whole crew of the USS Gorkon.
  • Prisoner of War Ribbon, 239412.14, 239601.28 (2nd Citation)
239412.14: Reynolds: Regrettably, in missions where there are citations for gallantry, there are often people who've suffered harm in the line of duty. Ensign Burke, Petty Officer Liss; Starfleet honours your service and sacrifice with a Purple Heart. Ensign MacFarlane, we honour you with the Prisoner of War ribbon.
23601.28: Reynolds: I'm sorry for interrupting the dancing. I have a few presentations and announcements to make, and then I'll let you all get back to your evening. ::She paused, and then ploughed ahead.:: First, I have some service ribbons to present as a result of our encounter with Lladre. All Starfleet crew are to receive the Prisoner of War ribbon; though it was through some very unusual means, we were all held captive while she tried to accomplish her goals.
  • Innovation Ribbon 239504.01
239504.01: Reynolds: A number of individuals also showed just how brilliant Starfleet officers can be, using their brains, rather their brawn, to bring about the successful rescue of the Starbase's population. Ensign Sienelis, I'm pleased to award you the Captain's Commendation. Ensign MacFarlane and… uh… ::she flushed a little pink, unable to quite hide her embarrassment,:: ...myself… are awarded the Innovation Ribbon for the clever application of technology to resolve a dangerous situation.
  • Purple Heart, 239504.01, 239604.27 (2nd Citation)
239504.01:Reynolds: Unfortunately, the danger of the mission did mean that there were injuries. Ensigns MacFarlane, Burke and Sienelis, Starfleet honours your bravery and sacrifice by awarding you the Purple Heart.
239604.27: Reynolds: The nature of the incident aboard the Njörðr means that we all suffered injuries that saw us under the care of the Yarahla's doctors. As such, everyone here is the recipient of a Purple Heart. ::She paused, glancing toward Marshall.:: Commander, if you would?
  • Good Conduct Ribbon, 239508.11
239508.11: Reynolds: Lieutenant Commander Reynolds, Lieutenant Junior Grades Marshall and MacFarlane, Ensigns Smith and Lanta, you too showed honour and valour in the line of duty, supporting Lieutenant zh'Aella's team in securing the warbird's bridge. As such, we present you with the Good Conduct Ribbon in recognition of your actions that day.
  • Department Chief Ribbon, 239607.25
239607.25: Marshall: In recognition and reward for individuals who have sustained, organised and run a department with ruthless and maniacal efficiency, ::her eyebrows flit upwards to show where the joke was,:: Starfleet marks this incredibly significant milestone achievement with the Department Chief Ribbon. Lieutenant Commander Reynolds and Lieutenant MacFarlane, please step up.
  • Legion of Merit, 239607.25
239607.25: Marshall: Deep within the Kamarov Corridor, those officers who remained on board had the daring and dangerous task of convincing an Orion Syndicate captain to defect to the Federation. Not only did they pull this off with remarkable tenacity, but also managed to do so without incurring the loss of life during the warp breach. For this, the Legion of Merit is awarded for distinguished meritorious conduct and achievement. Rear Admiral Reynolds, Lieutenants MacFarlane and Xerix, and Petty Officer Johns, please assume the position.

  • Nelix Award, 239506.25
239506.25: This person's presence on Discord isn't just an excuse to hop aboard the (two hour!) pun train. The nominations spoke of their willingness to help other simmers, offering advice and feedback on ideas and prose, and being an inspiration and all round ray of sunshine to anyone they chat with. A delight to chat with, fun to brainstorm with, and a joy to write with, Tasha MacFarlane more than deserving of an award that recognises out-of-character devotion to simming.
Congratulations, Tasha! I'm so happy to present you with the Neelix Award.
  • Scotty Cross, 239506.25
239506.25: Like the Q Award, the Scotty Cross recognises creativity in simming -- this time in resolving plot dilemmas. More than once, I've had a smile put on my face by the methods Tasha MacFarlane conjures up (or switches off, in one particular example!) in order to solve a problem, and from the nominations I know that I'm not the only one. I look forward to seeing how her out-of-the-box thinking will present itself in future.
So many congratulations! I'm very proud to award the Scotty Cross to Tasha MacFarlane.
  • Sheathed Sword, 239506.25
239506.25: There were a huge number of nominations for this award, no doubt spurred on by the quality of the sims surrounding the event and the recovery that followed. Tasha MacFarlane experienced a truly life-changing injury, but it was the sims and stories that followed that really cemented her as deserving of this award. From the physical recovery of the injury itself, phantom pains and counselling sessions, as well as learning to adapt and use a cybernetic limb, she's undergone an affecting and continuing journey toward acceptance and recovery.
Congratulations on another very well deserved award, Tasha!
  • Phoenix Award, 239607.01
239607.01: A miracle worker indeed! The winner of this year's Phoenix Award writes an engineer who is as ingenious as she is enthusiastic, using her engineering know-how to solve desperate situations, such as shutting down a breaching warp core, to spending her free time building a shuttle — from scratch! — to satisfy her own curiosity and personal goals.
Engineering can be a tricky department to play, and it's not always easy to find a way to contribute to the plot without first breaking something. Tasha adroitly manages to do just that, finding all kinds of different ways to use her character's skills to do bring something new and interesting to our stories. We've seen her tinker with the artificial gravity to protect her team from advancing assailants, and most recently, create an incredible holographic disguise for the Gorkon's bridge and crew while they were masquerading as pirates. She has a deft touch, and it's always entertaining to see what she's doing to do next.
For all of that, and more, I am delighted to be present Tasha MacFarlane with the Phoenix Award. Congratulations, Theo!
